Pink trumpet tree

Today we would like to show you one of the many Pantanal spectacles: the pink trumpet trees also known as ironwood (Tabebuia heptaphylla and Tabebuia impetiginosa, portuguese Piúva or Ipê Roxo) bearing flowers !
It's at this time of the year, after the first cold-air waves from southern South America have come-in, that they start to bloom in all majesty.

And this is another view: Leticia and Ana Emilia
